T824 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well I bought these T824's two years ago, I was the guy that asked about new lens covers. I dummy corded the new set that I was able to order. These binoculars have been on many excursions and trips, in the USA and Norway. They are small enough to take anytime anywhere. They have held up to travel, canoe trips, hiking, daily walks. The glass is high quality with crisp vision of what you are looking at. My only complaint is that they are not larger. I didn't buy them to be larger though, I have other binoculars in that category. I don't think I could have bought a better small binocular in the price range, I grab them all the time when I'm on the go and want lighter smaller quality glass with me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for hiking/glassing tree lines 10x is still my preference but these fill that need when something light weight is needed

What is the eye relief of the T824 binoculars?

Asked by: MikeB
Unfortunately I do not have access to that kind of specification. Eye relief was removed from our specifications when the entire product line began using some form of collapsible or twist-down eyecup (this feature was added specifically to enhance accessibility for eyeglass wearers.)

Are the T824 binoculars considered water-resistant? If so, could you clarify how well they will resist water? Example--does water-resistant mean non-submersible, but they are able to function without problems in a pouring rain? Thank you, Sam

Asked by: Sam P
